Next up, we grab the picks again. I used a small c-clamp to hold them together. I also like to wrap the end in some tough tape to make sure there isn't any unwanted movement. 

Next, I align the chainsaw file so that the diameter of it will intersect with the slope of the filed point. Now, I know that sentence is garbage, so do yourself a favor, study the template from the intro and make the first valley look like that. 

I swear, do it once, and from then on, you will be a bogota machine. The final picture in this set shows exactly what the picks should look like at this point.
